MR PRESIDENT? The worst we feared has come to pass. The aliens are invading. We tried to establish defences, but the chief astrologer kept debasing our evidence as guff and mumbo-jumbo. She believed that nothing could bypass the interspace barrier but they somehow circumvented it. We don't know how, but it doesn't matter now. They attacked the beach first, I was there to see it happen. I was just rubbing some lotion on my crusty skin when the crafts made landing. Sirens for miles around all went off at once as the probes' landing caused a powerful earthquake. They began firing, and I immediately recognised the face of my careers adviser, the one who advised me to enter the military in the first place, melting into a pool of cellulite and teeth. The lasers made the laser sound that they make in the movies. I threw my salad to the ground and rose from my deckchair, sending a plastic fork flying toward the sea; Ironic, how I once thought they were the greatest threat to the sea. A second earthquake rocked the beach as more ships splashed into the ocean like a fat man cannon-balling into a swimming pool except gunmetal grey and thirty feet tall and firing lasers. I recalled the chief economist, oh what a talented man he is, telling me about the emergency bunker beneath the beach, barricaded from battery by brutes from space, so I immediately went to Subway #eatfresh and saw an angel with a whip eating a meatball sandwich as though they were resigned to death but also didn't want to leave any unfinished business (the sandwich). Fast gulps, like they were in a hot dog eating contest, except it was way harder for them than it usually would be because they had a gimp mask on. At this point, I found something in my jacket pocket.
